If you've followed me on my other blog, The Lavender Tub, well....you know I have a bathroom with a big lavender tub....hence the name.
It is such a great tub, and the fact that it is freestanding right in the middle of the floor is wonderful. At least it is wonderful until you need a towel and then it is a bit of a stretch to reach one.
When I found this vintage floor lamp at my neighbor/friend's garage sale for $1, I knew just what I wanted to use it for. She knows of my crazy-out-there ideas. I think she's been waiting to see what came of her lamp.
It is actually just perfect for what I need, and I love that I can move it next to the tub or off to the side.
Since a piece of the lamp was broken off, I found a pair of matching frames at the thrift store for 50 cents each and created this vintage sign to cover the broken spot. (The frames are glued back-to-back.) I also added this crystal from a Hobby Lobby Christmas ornament.
Although I cleaned it thoroughly, I love all of its age and imperfections. No new paint desired. I also love how heavy and sturdy it is, which is why remaking old items is the best. You can't beat those solid, old materials.
